Nice place if you like something "Goa-like", but not in Goa.
Pros: not-so-crowded, less "buzz and smokes", more family and "healthy" vacation place. Very dense concentration of yoga, ayurvedic clinics, massage and reiki-shops.
Cons: Big waves in sea can make your swimming experience quite challenging and tricky.
"Varkala" means just one 200m beach and touristy "village" atop of 30-m cliff. It can be quite tight, especcially during weekends.
